‘The Leftovers’ Teaser: Damon Lindelof’s Rapturous HBO Drama Conjures Second Sneak Peek
Just as HBO yesterday delivered our best look yet at the seventh and final season of ‘True Blood,’ so too has the premium cable network conjured yet another teaser for ‘LOST‘ creator Damon Lindelof‘s post-rapture drama ‘The Leftovers.’ The grace period is over, but don’t worry because the latest sneak peek at the upcoming series will walk you through the grieving process.
For those unfamiliar, HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ follows those left behind on Earth after a rapture of sorts, those not chosen to be taken up to Heaven, or at least so a portion of the population believes of the disappearance. Adapted from Tom Perrotta’s 2009 novel of the same name, the show’s pilot was directed by Peter Berg (‘Lone Survivor‘).
We definitely get to see a little more of Christopher Eccleston in this new teaser than the previous full-length trailer allowed, and although this is an admittedly shorter look, it definitely sets a somber tone. ‘The Leftovers’ also stars Justin Theroux, Liv Tyler, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Amanda Warren, Chris Zylka, Margaret Qualley, Michael Gaston, Max Carver, Charlie Carver, Annie Q, Paterson Joseph, Brad Leland, ‘Private Practice‘ vet Amy Brenneman, and ‘Fringe‘ star Emily Meade.
HBO’s ‘The Leftovers’ will premiere on June 29 (having been pushed back two weeks from its original premiere for an unexpected production hiatus), so check out the latest sneak peek above, and tell us if you’re interested to check out HBO’s new drama from Damon Lindelof!
